Peak Your Car's Performance
Keep your car in tip-top shape with these simple tricks and expert maintenance advice.
It's All About the Maintenance
Maintenance is key to optimizing your vehicle's performance. Making time to take care of your car maxes out the life and the enjoyment you get out of your vehicle.
Change Your Oil
The importance of an oil change can't be underestimated, and knowing which motor oil you need for your car is fundamental. Whether you are looking to clean away sludge, help extend the life of your high mileage engine or unlock maximum performance, Castrol® has a solution.
Check Your Brakes
When you're pushing your speedometer to the limit or descending after an epic rock crawl, you want full confidence in your brakes. Ensure you have the proper brake pads for your on-road and off-road activities, and keep an eye on them – changing out when they start squealing, grinding or vibrating.
Flush Your Radiator
This is a quick way to make sure your system stays in shape. Get rid of the build-up and deposits in your radiator by draining the old coolant, flushing with a cleaning solution and water, and replacing fresh coolant.
Replace Spark Plugs
Amp up your engine's efficiency levels and switch out spark plugs when you're dealing with poor fuel economy or loss of power. If you're working with an older car, spark plugs may need to be changed more frequently.
Opt For Quality Products
Aside from your home, your car is typically the second largest investment you will make. Choosing a premium engine oil will help your car run better and longer, so protecting your investment and performing routine maintenance may help avoid costly repairs.

Create a space that shields your vehicle from weather and the outdoors.
